. senator max bachus of montana, good evening, senator. so you're supposed to be negotiating all this out with the republicans and the hesitant democrats to gain bipartisanship with a wholly owned subsidiary of the health sector. bipartisanship that will get you what? a total of no votes? and your price has been, let's see, $414,000 in donations from hospitals, $667,000 in donations from insurance companies, just over a million from big pharma, $1.2 00,000 from nursing homes. when you think of getting $237,000 in campaign contributions from nursing homes, senator baucus, do you ever think about whether they subtract that amount of money evenly from all the patients suffering and dying in the lousy ones or just a few of the lousy ones? so much for senator baucus. sadly, this list could go on almost all night, too. i could ask blue dog congressman democrat john tanner, tennessee, if since he has gotten $215,000 from hospitals over the years if i and the appropriate number of my friends were willing to make it $216,000 if we could buy his vote or would there still have to be an auction? we c

these ideas, reinforced by the hollywood roles such as montana molan? do you think that this brought back a sort of mental slavery on that next generation that we are dealing with now to this point? >> yes. i should have you appear. and to answer the question of what happened. completely agree. so the reason why it ended was because the former masters did not believe, could not believe that we thought we were better than our segregation. that we actually had the nerve to become equals, right? that was the reason segregation construction and. we were taking advantage of all the opportunities and we no longer were slaves. and i think what happened, which is fascinating, that there was -- our history has been eaten out of us. i am literally in the sense it has been destroyed. there was a georgian lawmaker that was quoted as saying he wanted to destroy any record of african-american -- of freed slaves in the legislature because they had the nerve to be our colleagues. so at a certain point in certain states you know longer have records of freed slaves as lawmakers. going to go to the state se
